Spin Boost

From the Super Mario Wiki
Mario, Bowser and Luigi spin boosting with each other in Mario Kart 8
“Colliding with an opponent in an antigravity zone will cause you to bounce away from each other, giving you both a slight speed boost.”
Mario Kart 8 Digital Manual

A Spin Boost (known as a Spin Turbo in the British English version) is a driving technique used and introduced in Mario Kart 8. The technique is exclusive in anti-gravity segments in the tracks. When two or more players collide with each other, all players who made contact receive a speed boost, unlike in normal gravity sections where players simply collide from each other. Players can also receive Spin Boosts from driving through Spin Boost Pillars in certain tracks.
